I'm Nicole from Switzerland and have been living in Italy since 2016 with my partner Giovanni (Italian). We want to turn our land into a beautiful garden with a lots of flowers, trees and vegetables. This year we planted a lot and we will continue to give this place more color and life just a few kilometers outside Pisa. We were also able to harvest our first vegetables like zucchins, tomatoes, corn, melon, potatoes and pumpkins. We have bees and when they make a lot of honey, we take some for ourselves. My favorite work is harvesting olives in early October. I like to do this meditative work and in the end this delicious grass green oil comes out that should not be missing on the table.
In our garden there is not only a lot to do but also a lot to create.

You have both - city AND countryside! Pisa is a nice little city and you have everything in walking distance. A trip to the sea is not far (20-30min by bus) and there are a lot of nice villages/cities around Pisa like Lucca, Florence, Livorno...
In the countryside you will have the peace of nature. I also love hiking and if you like we can do some hikes toghether in the mountains.
My opinion is: if you travel around and meet people you learn ALWAYS something. Everybody comes into your life to give you some inputs and get to know yourself better. I'm looking forward to meet you!
We need help in the garden:
plant trees, bushes, vegetables (we have an excavator ;) )
etc etc etc
We like hard working and effcient people, so we can do shorter shifts and enjoy also other nice things like drinking cappucchino... ;)
